The Pet Project should start at Daystar University Ngong road via Community, Uhuru park, Kenyatta avenue, Moi avenue, Haile Selassie road to Kariokor market.. I have been saying this for so long. The NCC can recover money in 2 yrs making profit as people will be moving to and from these areas all the time.
Cable car systems use very little power. For example, a system moving 11,000 commuters per hour over 5km uses 400Kw (equivalent to 3 no. 3-litre Toyota Landcruiser engines.) Clearly appropriate back up power back up generators will not be an issue. The total power required for the 30Km Nairobi Phase 1 lines is under 4MW.
When I first read about the cable cars at the Likoni ferry, I thought this was a late April fools joke but now it seems someone is lobbying very hard to have it implemented or why would BD publish it twice.The answer to our traffic problem lies in changing the question from how to move vehicles faster to how to move people faster.
Another tourist site seeing infrastructure project... Well, we need all modes of transport... I welcome this.
I think this will be exiting. Reduced time usage for crossing over and a comfortable and classic means. Can't wait to see it come to pass...
